Burroughs: The Movie

01

Image

01. Directed by Howard Brookner.

Words

"Made up of intimate, revelatory footage of the singular author and poet filmed over the course of five years, Howard Brookner’s 1983 documentary about William S. Burroughs was for decades mainly the stuff of legend; that changed when Aaron Brookner, the late director’s nephew, discovered a print of it in 2011 and spearheaded a restoration. Now viewers can enjoy the invigorating candidness of Burroughs: The Movie, a one-of-a-kind nonfiction portrait that was brought to life with the help of a remarkable crew of friends, including Jim Jarmusch and Tom DiCillo, and that features on-screen appearances by fellow artists of Burroughs’s including Allen Ginsberg, Herbert Huncke, Patti Smith, and Terry Southern."

Unused Hooded Denim Coat

01

Images

01. 13.5oz cotton denim.
02. Removable hood.

Words

While some may think this is a lot of denim to use for a full-length piece of outerwear, I consider this hooded coat from Unused to be a truly impressive take on the classic M-51 parka. Fairly true to the original US military design – minus the epaulets – the detailing looks impeccable. What I’d be most intrigued to see though, is the fades it will pick up after a few years of regular wear.

Weekend Listening: Jodorowsky's Dune Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

01

Image

01. Artwork by Nick Stewart Hoyle

Words

With the recent release of the soundtrack for the documentary Jodorowsky’s Dune, put out on the always outstanding Light in the Attic Records, Kurt Stenzel has composed a return to the days of expansive four-sided LPs. The instruments used read like the best moments of '70s krautrock, exhibiting a laundry list of rare synthesizer gear, including a couple of oddities such as a toy Concertmate organ and even a Nintendo DS. I can’t wait to put on all sides of the soundtrack to this incredible 2013 film, and relish plugging in for the journey that awaits. I got this record just at the right time since I’m actually rereading the Frank Herbert novel at the moment, and should probably just drop the needle as I’m turning the pages – seems like a pretty fitting pairing to me.

Kato' Wide Collar Work Shirt

01

Image

01. 85% cotton, 15% hemp.

Words

The Japanese brand Kato' always does a great job of taking unassuming items and imbuing them with unique and useful design tweaks. The spread collar on this work shirt gives it a distinctive feel, while the large chest pockets would make it a lot easier to carry items I constantly have trouble fitting into conventional versions, like my near tablet-sized phone.

Carl Andre by Diane Waldman

Info

Softcover, 82 pages
44 artworks
Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, 1970

Words

I’m a little surprised that this original Carl Andre catalogue, which was uploaded to the Book/Shop website in early November, is still available. Relating to an exhibition at the Guggenheim that ran from September 29th to November 22th, 1970, this volume features 44 of the artist’s works, as well as an essay by the curator Diane Waldman. If that sounds at all interesting, grab this copy before it’s removed from the shop on January 5th.
